little island in the sea with palm trees

“Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink.”

This line is from “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,” a poem about a mariner lost aboard a ship and surrounded by nothing but undrinkable salt water.  Much the same applies to Caribbean islands, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and with only very limited fresh groundwater supplies.

Lonza feeder systems and calcium hypochlorite (cal hypo) sanitizers now treat all of the recreational water and drinking water for a major resort in the Caribbean.  The resort’s recreational water spans many, many bodies of water, including swimming pools, water slide pools, a swim-with-the dolphins lagoon and other fun water park features and attractions.

The resort’s recreational waters are treated with Lonza’s Pulsar® cal hypo briquettes that are used in our dedicated Pulsar® sanitizer feeding systems.   

Lonza’s Constant Chlor™ sanitizers and feeder systems are also being used to treat the resort island’s drinking water, which is produced by two desalination plants (that remove salt from ocean water).  One of the desalination plants is operated by a major global infrastructure company, and they are so delighted with the success of our system at the island desalination plant that the company has elected to install eight more Lonza systems at their other desalination plants throughout the Caribbean.  Essentially, our sanitizing system treats the water once salt is removed, to assure it is safe to drink.
